An unknown object — a “cosmic string” – has been discovered near the milky Way’s supermassive black hole. This cosmic thread will revolutionize our understanding of gravity, space-time, and the Universe itself.
The center of our Galaxy has been intensively studied for many years, but it still holds surprises for scientists. A snake-like structure lurking near our galaxy’s supermassive black hole has become a discovery that teases the imagination of astronomers. “A mystery that became part of the thrill. Science has stumbled upon a mystery that is not easy to solve,” said Jun — Hui Zhao of the Harvard-Smithsonian center for astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts. “While we don’t have an answer yet, the path to finding it is fascinating.”
In 2016, Farhad Youssef-Zadeh of northwestern University reported the discovery of an unusual luminous filament near the center of the milky way galaxy using a very large NSL Karl j matrix. Yansky (VLA). The thread is about 2.3 light-years long and curves around and towards a supermassive black hole called Sagittarius A * (Sgr A *), located at the center of the Galaxy. Continue reading
Our universe is really huge. Pulsars, planets, stars, black holes, and hundreds of other objects of incomprehensible size that are located in the Universe.
And today we would like to tell you about the 10 biggest things. In this list, we have compiled a collection of some of the largest objects in space, including nebulae, pulsars, galaxies, planets, stars, and more.
Without further delay, here is a list of the ten biggest things in the Universe.
10. The largest planet.
The largest planet in the Universe is TrES-4. It was discovered in 2006, and it is located in the constellation Hercules. A planet called TrES-4 orbits a star that is about 1,400 light-years away from the planet Earth.
The planet TrES-4 itself is a sphere that consists mainly of hydrogen. Its size is 20 times the size of the Earth. Researchers claim that the diameter of the discovered planet is almost 2 times (more precisely, 1.7 times) larger than the diameter of Jupiter (it is the largest planet in the Solar system). The temperature of TrES-4 is about 1260 degrees Celsius.
9. The huge star. Continue reading
In the West a book about the mysteries of space successes of the USSR: the screams of the dying astronaut and Khrushchev dancing on the table
In the book it is reported that the last words of Komarov in Soyuz, as well as his talks with the Earth “overheard” some analyst of U.S. National security. According to the authors of the book, knew about the unreliability of the ship and the astronauts, signed to fly – the father of two children Komarov and Gagarin (Yuri was assigned as backup). When you return to the ground did not deploy parachute descent, and the engines when hitting the ground exploded. The tragedy occurred near Orenburg.
American intelligence intercepted the last words of Soviet cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov, when on 24 April 1967 he raced to the surface and certain death on accident victim “the Union-1”. These were the shouts and curses against “the people who put him in carelessly made spacecraft,” say the authors of a new book that will be released in the UK in April – just in time for the 50-year anniversary of the first manned flight into space.
